The front staff was pretty competent but not too friendly. People said the views were good compared to other places. The food was uniformly rated by guests we spoke to as mediocre. The bus service was good. Would have appreciated a glass glass in the room. The room was fine and the hotel experience was fine.

The location is outstanding and the courtesy bus way better than anticipated. The public areas are all very pleasant and the pool much appreciated. The food was very mediocre: perfectly edible, but unexciting, with small portions and a generally poor sense of value. The coffee was grim. Our room was a bit cramped, but pretty decent as a 'standard' room, with a better-than-anticipated balcony and view and was nice and quiet. The staff were a mixed bunch: some were lovely, others were decidedly grumpy. Good, but not the 'fabulous' cited on TripAdvisor.

This hotel is wonderful. The views are breathtaking. The rooms are quite, and clean. The restaurant is very good and the breakfast was the best we had in Italy and we stayed at 4 different hotels. The service was very friendly. The location is high in the hills which gives you a great view but you cannot walk to town. They do however have a free shuttle that runs all day. The pool area was nice to relax at and the bar made great cappuccinos. I would recommend this hotel and we would return.

An enjoyable stay at a really nice hotel. Spotlessly clean with comfortable rooms (although a little small,-we had a double superior with balcony so ours may have been bigger than some). The staff were friendly and personable-we both liked Nino in particular who had the knack of making you feel special. La Vue D'Or is well up the hill from Sorrento so be warned- on the night of our arrival we had to get a taxi from Sorrento (where the transfer bus dropped us), to the hotel- this cost 40 Euro for a 15 minute journey! The shuttle bus provided by the hotel is a real boon and runs regularly,-without it a stay at this hotel would not be feasible as hiring a car would not be recommended due to the road conditions and the drivers on them . The only downside of our entire stay is when we asked the receptionist whether the hotel could help us get down to Sorrento to get our transfer bus on the last day as the local SITA buses were on strike and we didn't want to spend another 40 Euro on taxis- they offered no help!

We stayed in a family room (double and 2 twin beds all in one room). We had a lovely view of Sorrento and the Mediterranean off the small terrace. The pool area and solarium were exceptional, and we enjoyed relaxing there and admiring the view.The staff at the hotel was very gracious and helpful,and their English was much better than our Italian!

One thing we weren't told was that you have to reserve the shuttle when you want to go from Sorrento back up to the hotel. We waited for over an hour before we figured this out. However, once you know that, the service is great! The hotel staff were very helpful and one gentleman was especially nice and arranged for us to be dropped off close to the train station on our last day. The views are also spectacular!

Be warned, this hotel is pretty far from Sorrento and we got stung by a 40 euro taxi ride. It´s definitely worth staying here though because it has stunning views and a lovely swimming pool and solarium. I would recommend that you get the times of the free shuttle bus before you arrive so that you can avoid getting a taxi. The shuttle bus is frequent and it only takes about 15 minutes. The rooms are ok, nothing too special, but clean and spacious. There isn´t a minibar and the shower leaked a lot, but I was pleased with this hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel! Way up on the mountain, overlooking the water. We chose a balcony with sea view, and we weren't disappointed. Although it was hazy (August) and the daytime view was a little obscured, the vista at night was amazing. We could see the nightly fireworks display over in Naples. The hotel staff was excellent and made us feel welcome. The room was lovely, with a beautiful bathroom and adequate space, even with the additional twin bed for our daughter. Breakfast was also good, with lots of choices, made even nicer by the dining room's surroundings. The pool was nice, and the patio had a lovely view of the mountainside. The only negative was that the shuttle bus down into Sorrento stopped running at 10:15 a.m., with a long break until the afternoon, so by the time we finished breakfast, we had to drive ourselves down into the town, and it's a long ride. That said, I would highly recommend this hotel.

I lost my camera on the hotel shuttle and it was returned. That says a lot about the character of the employees and of the guests who choose this hotel. Hotel was in extremely beautiful location and provided free shuttle into Sorrento. From the website however, I was under the impression that there was beach access and there was not. Also, the hotel provides dinner, but don't try and split anything. Everyone is charged for the small meal option, even if you attempt to split courses. We had a quadroom.

Our visit to Sorrento was last minute during our stay in Rome. We had never been to Sorrento and the Amalfi coast but had heard many good reports. We searched for hotel on Venere web site from Rome and found La Vue d'Or. We were extremely happy with the hotel. Beautiful surroundings and magnificent view of Naples Bay The rooms and service were great and even with our very limited Italian we had no problems with communications. Since the hotel was some distance up the hills from town, free shuttle is provided. I don't think your web site mentioned that. I would be good to add that as a trip into town could be expensive by cab and not so convenient by bus. (Cab from Circumvesuvio train station in Sorrento to hotel was 50 Euros)

Overall the hotel was of a high standard and good value for money. The staff were very friendly, helpful and competent. There was one clear area for improvement and one disadvantage about our room. The evening meal was of poor quality and was very expensive compared with other places in town. Early in the morning the scraping of chairs on the floor of the dining room above our room was very noisy and distracting. This started well before 0700 most mornings.

Cannot really add much to the good things that have already been said about this hotel and we endorse them all. What we can add is that we arrived home feeling relaxed and refreshed after our stay there so La Vue d'Or must take credit in helping us to achieve that. Even the mechanical problems with the shuttle bus did nothing to spoil our holiday as the hotel pulled out all the stops, including family members and staff using their own cars, to ensure that guests were not inconvenienced. This was just one example of the high standard of friendly service we experienced during our stay. It was our first stay at this particular hotel, we have visited the area for over 20 years, and we hope not the last.

We spent a great 7 nights here. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very nice hotel kept absolutely spotless. Bar and food prices very reasonable. There is a free shuttle bus to and from Sorrento which runs more or less throughout the day and evening. Poolside is nice and simple and plenty of Brits stay here. We made loads of friends. We had a car so went off to Amalfi coast and Vesuvius/Herculaneum, which, by the way, is better tham Pompei for ruins. You can do all these by public transport so a car isn't really necessary especially as you can't park in Sorrento. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay at the Hotel Vue D'Or again with no misgivings. Views were amazing from our balcony (room 355), rooms could be cooler(even with A/C) but it wasn't a problem as they gave us a fan. Well recommended and away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento although it's nice to go there to eat in the evenings and catch the shuttle back at 10.30pm. Careful though if you've got kids as the bus gets busy and you may have to wait 20 mins for the second run getting you back to the hotel at 11.15pm.

We all loved this hotel although it was farther from Sorrento than we expected. The shuttle bus was very convenient though, and it was well located to use the local bus to see Positano and Amalfi.Dinner in the restaraunt was a fixed price four course meal which didn't work well for our family, but breakfast was great. We really enjoyed relaxing by the swimming pool one afternoon! The staff was great.

A very pleasant and comfortable hotel, which would have been even more enjoyable if the weather had been warmer and we had been able to enjoy the lovely pool area. We took some other reviewer's advice and paid extra to have a room with a view--and we were glad we did. The breakfast and the room it is served in were both exceptionally nice. Other travellers suggested that we were best to eat dinner out as the hotel's food was bland, so we took their advice. I would suggest that you ask the hotel for good in-town restauarants. We didn't and wished we had. The shuttle bus was hugely helpful. For those travelling by car, as we were, the map was inadequate. Be sure to get specific directions as to where to turn right to go up the hill, and how many kilometres it is from that turn off. (Without the latter you might think you had made a mistake as it was a very long way!)Again for those with a car, the hotel has its own very convenient parking lot. Ask for directions if you plan to drive down the Amalfi Coast.

Sorrento was crowded with traffic comparable to a busy city. In contrast however this hotel was a quiet oasis of calm on the mountain above town. Staff were friendly & helpful, a credit to hotel. "Sea view" was a glimpse from side of balcony but view of mountains & town below were fantastic. Breakfast fairly standard but very acceptable, I wouldn`t however recommend the evening meal. Overall we felt we`d made an excellent choice of hotel. Driving in Italy? Don`t even go there!!!!!! Use shuttle bus

Our second visit to this warm and friendly, family-run hotel. We weren't disappointed. The staff even recognised us from last year although they must see many thousands of people per year. Personally, I am not a huge fan of Sorrento itself but I have no doubt we will return to La Vue D'or again, probably for a short visit to round off our holiday as we did this year from Puglia. We recognised a couple from our first visit and they said that they had been visiting the hotel for 20 years - not a bad testimonial. The view from the hotel terrace is simply stunning and if you are lucky enough to get a sea-view room then you will awaken to a backdrop befitting some romantic Hollywood movie, probably starring Sophia Loren and Gregory Peck!! The staff are outstanding, with particular praise going to the head waiter Bartolo and chief barman Angelo. Down side? Well you are probably a bit far out if you prefer the hustle and bustle of the town, but friends to whom we recommended the hotel earlier this year said that this wasn't a problem for them and they ate out every evening.

Gorgeous views. Spacious rooms. Very nice pool. Even nicer hotel than it was shown to be on website. Was difficult to access the first time from the train station. It is far from the city and the shuttle bus was sometimes very crowded. Air conditioner broke one very hot evening. However, even with a few difficulties, the hotel was beautiful; the rooms were spacious, for European style; decks and lobby were very inviting; bathrooms were clean and modern: the view was breathtaking. The sea-view room with balcony is definitely worth the extra cost and we would recommend it to others.

The view is outstanding. The facilities are just as described. The service is good. The pool was clean.It would be nice if they had cable with a few English speaking channels for the kids. Breakfast above average compared to other places we stayed.The local bus is very convienient. We used it to get to town on several occaisions. We had trouble getting back on the local bus because the drop off place (the train station) and the pick up place (the street behind and above the train station)are in 2 different locations (as best we can tell). The hotal shuttle drops you off at the edge of town far from the train station but close to shopping). You would never find the pick up place unless you had been dropped off there at least once. A map of excatly where the pick up place in town is located would be a good addtition the the web site and the hotel info sheet.We took the bus from the hotel to Positano and it worked out great and was only about 3.80 Euro.We took the boat back and it drops you off in the center of Sorrento and you get a great view of the coast. Cabs are expensive (35 Euro) from town to hotel so the shuttle and local bus are a cheap solution and run regularly.

Very nice and calm structure with a beautiful view on the Sorrentina Coast. Free shuttle service as an excellent idea to avoid the use of the car in Sorrento and the problems linked to traffic and car parks. Nevertheless, the price is quite expensive regarding the services provided (refering to the restaurant in HB for instance:tiny portions and no real specialities from southern Italy: when visiting a country we expect to eat local food and Italy is not only "pasta"). Service all orientated to anglo saxon speakers, even for people not being native, not English speakers but trying to speak italian!!! A calm structure intending to remain as it is, more frequentated by senior couple than by families with children (which means possible noise especially when playing in a swimming pool).

Very pleased with the hotel facilities. Very clean and comfortable. Used the complimentary bus service which was very useful. The only down part was the last day when leaving at 7.30am the bus was going to the station with 6 passengers and luggage. We wanted to catch the same train from Sorrento station to Naples for our connection to Rome but was told the bus had been booked and there was no room available. As we were waiting at the bus stop the 19 seater bus went past with obvious room for us and our luggage. The driver could have been more friendly.

It was the first time we had booked a holiday by using the internet and we were worried if the hotel would live up to the expectations on the web site. But,the actual hotel lived up to and beyond our expectations. Whilst the hotel is a little way out of town (25 euros in a taxi), the scenery and the general feel of the place is very relaxing and very welcoming. There is a bus provided by the hotel which takes you to the centre of Sorrento, but be careful it is very punctual and will not wait even a few minutes, but if you do miss it there are plenty public buses that run past the hotel(only 1 euro). The staff at the hotel were brilliant and assisted with information whenever asked. We stayed in one night for a meal in the hotel which was not particulary inspired and a bit expensive, but, there are plenty of places to eat in Sorrento. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from the hussle and bussle of the town,but also be within 10 minutes of it. However, if you want to be able to walk into the town from the hotel forget it. I would go back to this hotel again, but next time I would spend a little more time lazing around on the patio enjoying the view overlooking the bay.

Tolles Zimmer mit wunderschöner Aussicht auf Sorrent und die Bucht. Das Hotel ist gut zu erreichen (Bushaltestelle 100 m entfernt, ausserdem bietet das Hotel mehrmals täglich einen Shuttleservice ins Zentrum an). Einziger Minuspunkt: wir haben einmal das Menü für 20 Euro gegessen - und es bitter bereut; das Essen war wirklich nur durchschnittlich. Besser und in netterer Atmosphere ißt man in einem der vielen Restaurants in Sorrent.

This hotel is located in the hills above Sorrento. We enjoyed fabulous views in a quiet setting. The room was very clean and modern. The staff was helpful and friendly. The bus to Positano and Amalfi runs right by the hotel. Our only issue was the need to drive or take the bus down to Sorrento for dinner. The hotel provides a price fixe menu that I would pass on if you have other options.

A very good little hotel high in the hills above Sorrento. Catering towards the English market, the rooms were clean and the bathrooms spotless. We had a large balcony overlooking the front with magnificent views. The hotel shuttle bus is excellent and always on time. Peak bus times are the 9am and 9:30am down to Sorrento and the 17.30pm, 19.30pm and 21.00pm back to the hotel but we never had any problems getting a seat. On one occasion we caught the local bus from a stop just down the road - 1 euro pp and you get the tickets from the hotel and stamp them in the machine as you board the bus. I liked the fact that the hotel was away from the hustle and noise of Sorrento but it only took 10 mins to get there. Breakfast was adequate, the coffee was excellant. We ate dinner once in the hotel [served from 7pm to 8:30pm] and when we went down at 8 a few of the selections had already gone, but the lamb chops I had were excellant. On many other reviews I have read how difficult it is to find the hotel - well - go straight through Sorrento. At certain times of the day you are not able to drive down the main shopping street; if this is the case then turn left and follow this road until you rejoin the sea. Just past the Hotel Cavour there is a junction with lots of white road markings. The main road bends round to the right - take the road that goes straight on - and follow this for 4miles until you reach Don Pedros restaurant - the hotel is just past here. We ate in Don Pedros - very good but quite expensive.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at La Vue d'Or. The entire staff was excellent. The front desk was very helpful with directions for our daily excursions along the Amalfi coast and different locales in the area. The view from our 4th floor balcony room was terrific. Thanks to all.

A really lovely Hotel, I'm not sure but I think the hotel must have been just redecorated, everything was very clean and new looking. At first glance from the outside the Hotel does not look anything special, but once inside you change your opinion. Fabulous views and the free mini bus down to town is really handy, the restaurant is fair but not outstanding, but with so many places to eat in town and with the free bus for a lift your better off eating in town.

We drove from Naples airport and at one point thought we may have got lost as the hotel is actually about 15 minutes outside of Sorrento, however the journey was worthwile. The hotel is set on the hillside, with fantastic views over the bay, and mountains. The hotel was very clean and modern, and the staff helpful and friendly, plus you could always get a spot by the pool. The only downside was the food. The breakfast choice was limited, and the one dinner we had, as we stayed on B&B basis, was not very appealing. Sorrento is marvellous, and there are many good restaurants (the Lanterna Due is the best). The hotel offers a free daily shuttle bus, which is great if you don't want to drive all the time. We will definately return, both to the area, and the hotel.

A warm welcome, well run family hotel, facilities exactly as described. All employees were extremely helpful. The only constructive comment we have is that it would be better if an additional bus service to the town was arranged at 10.30 am to allow the later attendees at breakfast to access the town.

We had a very pleasant stay here. When we arrived they had a vacancy in one of the more expensive rooms with a lovely balcony and they upgraded us for free for our first night which was lovely! The views are truly spectacular and it is just so peaceful. Sorrento is lovely but when you come to this hotel you can escape from it all. The breakfasts are very generous, there was a buffet with juices, bread and crossiants, yoghurts, cereals, selection of cheese and cold meats and coffees. The second morning we did have to wait a long time for our coffee but only because the waiters were so busy. We ate there one evening also,3 courses for 20 euros, the food wasn't fabulous though, but the service was excellent so it made up for it. There is a lovely resstaurant down the road which we ate on the second night, the fish there is fabulous. The hotel is very spacious and the pool area is lovely and clean. I would reccomend anyone staying here, truly relaxing and amazing views. We really did enjoy it and would definitely return again.

La Vue D'Or was superb. The photos on Venere do not do justice to the view from the terraces. It is stunning and covers the whole of the Bay of Naples with Vesuvius as a magnificent backdrop. No need for a sea view room in my opinion as little time is spent in the room itself. The staff go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. We stayed on a half board basis and found the food to be excellent and plentiful. The waiters, Bartolo and Tonino couldn't have been more accommodating, even to those that wouldn't even attempt a little Italian. They spoke good English, but were more than happy to humour me in my butchery of their mother tongue. One criticism is that the directions on the site are very poor. We came down from Florence by car and it was more by luck than judgement that we found the hotel. It is a good 5km outside Sorrento up in the hills. The hotel shuttle bus was very reliable and we used public transport a lot. However, although everyone got onto the bus while we were there, I could envisage a situation where the bus was over-subscribed and a taxi to/from town was 35 Euros. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it.

this place is beautiful. Roberto was wonderful, a great host and concierge. The shuttle is definitely necessary, Sorrento is at the bottom, La Vue at the top of a small mountain top. Get a balcony room, it is worth it. Wish the shuttle would have run past 11:30 PM, Sorrento is a great town for doing things at night.

What a fabulous family run hotel. The holiday was quiet and restful with not too much noise within the confines of the hotel. The service was exceptional and the food in the restaurant so delicious and very reasonable. Our sea facing room had the most amazing view over Sorrento and the sea towards Vesuvius. The bus which goes to and from the hotel is really handy and we only once needed to use public transport (which is very cheap anyway and only a few metres down the road). It was great being up in the mountains where the temperature was a bit cooler and from a review on this website I knew to ask for a fan as the airconditioning was being repaired in the room. Altogether a wonderful experience and I would definately go again.

Great place to stay with very good owners who spoke very good english, very helpful and friendly. Keep in mind this location is about 20- 25 minutes out of Sorrento- they do have shuttle service & bus stops close by. A cab will cost you around $25- $30Euro's each way. The view was outstanding, the pool very nice and the restaurant was good for breakfast and even dinner. A very modern styled room- very spacious. Would stay again and highly recommend. Internet service in Lobby.

La Vue D'Or qualifies more as a resort than a hotel. Beautiful place away from the tourist traps of Sorrento. However, that may constitute the biggest inconvenience of this place: although the adress states Sorrento, it is 5Km away from the center, up in the mountain. It's closer to the Santa Agatha village than to Sorrento. And when you're trying to look for the place at midnight & you realize that streets don't have names, you're in for some fun... The hotel offers a shuttle bus service (unadvertised), for early morning or late evening trips; it's highly recommended to leave your car at their parking, because finding a spot in the city is not an easy task. Unfortunately, the shuttle bus was often too small to hold all the guests. Another bugger was that the pool closes at 7pm. Bring your own towels!!! (room towels not allowed & they will charge you 1.50EUR for renting some). Breakfast was included, buffet, very abundant, good, nothing extra-ordinary. Overall very relaxing & beautiful place, except for the shuttle bus issue.

This hotel was fabulous! We were lucky enough to be upgraded on our arrival to the appartment suite which was brand new , sparkling clean and equipped with a spa bath and sea view balcony! Reception was really friendly and helpful even tho our italian is rubbish. The breakfast was a good selection but not quite to my taste but then I am very fussy! The pool and solarium were great, the bus service definitely needed but very good none the less. We had a really fantastic trip and I really couldn't fault the hotel or this website. It was the first time we had used venere and I was a bit dubious that they didn't take the money and that the room would be reserved as expected but I needn't have worried, it was great. I was planning to go to Ireland for our family holiday in August but I'm now looking to return to Sorrento and the Hotel Vue D'or. I really do highly recommend this hotel!!

Unfortunately we didn't know that the hotel was under renovation during our stay; however, the finished product will likely be quite beautiful. The breakfast was mediocre - would have been nice to have day-to-day variety/options. Staff was generally polite but a bit disorganized and not overly helpful. On a high positive note, the free shuttle service to/from Sorrento was great!

What was really good was the kindness of the staff and the sunterras with faboulous view! We booked this 3 star hotel at €120/day while we could book a 4 star hotel at €60/day because of the good reviews and the pictures. The hotel was excellent but still a 3 star hotel. I think the price we paid was too high (as it was low season and we paid the maximum for the room). The view is great however it is not really worthwhile booking a more expensive room with seaview as the windows are small.

Vom Hotel hat man einen herrlichen Blick über die gesamte Bucht von Neapel. Um unabhängig vom Hotel-Shuttle zu sein, ist ein Mietwagen ratsam. Das angebotene Menu könnte etwas einfallsreicher gestaltet sein. Die Ober sind jedoch sehr höflich und zuvorkommend. Einzelne Dinge in den Zimmern im obersten Stockwerk könnten erneuert werden.

The hotel is about 5 km distance from the town and is ideal for those that have a car. The local bus stops about 1 -1 1/2 km below the hotel, so without a car walking is involved. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The view from our seaview room was magnificant. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening and the food was excellent. The menu offered a 19 Euro dinner which included three courses and desert. The breakfast was delicious and, while offering no hot items, offered a great many selections that would satisfy most everyone. I would stay there again if I returned to Sorrento.

We stayed for 3 days and will recommend this hotel to anyone that does not mind staying a bit outside the main town.

we had an amzing holiday! it is fantastic sorrento is amazing! whether you are young or old single or a couple its brilliant! this hotel is quality. It is situated 6km by roadf from sorrento which is about 3 miles, yet as the crow flys its only about 1 mile. the hotel is protruding out of the cliffs so you get amazing views. the hotel was warm and friendly and was perfect. the courtesy bus means you are close to the culture, fashion shops, beaches, the train to rome/naples/pompei. but also you get the peace and quiet for a good nights sleep that you only get out of town. the hotel is situated in orange/lemon groves and the road to the hotel is laced with olive groves and grape vines. The public busses in this part of italy are flawless and run every 30 mins ish and cost about 57p for each hour travelled. the trains are equally good. all in all this hotel is a fantastic base for anyone, i would reccomend it

Views from the hotel are stunning. The best balcony view we have had to date. The staff are very helpful. The courtesy bus is prompt and reliable and very much needed! The pool is fine but closes after 6pm. We found that the only negative aspects were that the courtesy bus does not run all day and you must plan your time around this although the public bus stops outside, the safety deposit box is located at the front desk, and is not accessible before 5pm, also non of the rooms are air conditioned, but fans are available on request. Overall we had a pleasant stay and have fond memories of this family run hotel.
